February is coming and with it, Random Acts of Kindness Week. I’ve created these adorable kindness hearts to help your kids focus on random acts of kindness for others this February. These Kindness Hearts activities are perfect for teaching kids about spreading kindness and love for the whole month of February!
Kindness Hearts Activities and Kindness Printables
You can choose just a few acts of kindness from the hearts, try to complete one kindness heart each day, or challenge your kids to complete as many kindness hearts as they can. Keep reading to get your own printable kindness hearts activity and more great ideas for random acts of kindness week.
No-Prep Kindness Hearts Printable
I’m so excited about these easy no-prep kindness heart printables! These pages are filled with simple activities children can complete to spread kindness and cheer throughout the month of February.
Each idea is organized on pink and red hearts that can be cut out and attached to the printable pink “kindness jar.”
Your kids can spend Valentine’s Day or Random Acts of Kindness Week filling their kindness jar with these cute kindness hearts by adding a new heart each time they complete a task. There are so many ways you can use these adorable printables.
I’d like to challenge you to use the whole month of February to fill your kindness jar. You can print the included jar worksheet and glue on hearts your kids have completed or laminate the page and attach velcro dots. That way, you can use this kindness hearts printable for many years to come.
Another idea is to print and cut out the kindness hearts. Then have kids draw them out of a real jar randomly to complete or choose one ot complete and drop it in the jar when it’s finished. Not interested in the jar?
You can hand out kindness hearts without the jar for a fun day of random kindness and cheer.
Teaching Kids About Kindness
Kids often develop kindness skills naturally, but teaching them to spread kindness is an important social and emotional skill that’s is worth our time and attention. Teaching kindness at home and in the classroom encourages kids to be empathetic, inclusive, and show compassion.
Plus, there are lots of benefits to being kind for the giver as well as the receiver. Children who practice kindness are healthier and happier. They often have an easier time making friends too, because they are more likely to be accepted by others and less likely to be the victims of bullying.
Teaching kindness is best done by example. Showing kindness to others is the best way to teach your kids because they’re always watching us. When we set a good example through various daily interactions with others, our kids are more likely to choose kindness.
